He plays lead for Wilco. And I fully agree that Wilco is one of the best live acts around.

If so, go to their site and listen to some live shows from their roadcase section, which they update every couple of months with a handful of shows. Great, great live band. When I saw them just prior to their last release, 70+% of the crowd at Mt Winery already knew the words to those songs. The vibe at their shows is fantastic - a real sense of community.

You and I have talked of this before so I knew what I was getting, and I still got shivers down my spine, just like every other time. If the Impossible Germany solo was a painting every art gallery in the world would want it.

I was going to check out the show in late July at the PNC ARTS Center.Normal tickets were just about ok but when you add $14.00 service charge well you can Kishmeirintuchas.
I am such a throw back that at the Fillmore East Bill Graham charged $5.50 for 3 bands. Not to mention the sound test at the COW PALACE for a whopping $2.50 and on it goes.
